POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHERS IN THE DYNAMICS OF MULTIFUNCTION BRAIN NETWORKS
The BioCircuits Institute (BCI) and Departments of Physics, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Bioengineering, and Psychology at the University of California, San Diego invite applications for several postdoctoral positions conducting research at the interface between dynamical systems neuroscience, statistical physics, and neuromorphic engineering. The aims of the research program, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, are to conduct basic research on how collective action in the brain learns, modulates and produces coherent functional neural activity for coordinated behavior of complex systems, and to engineer a neuromorphic cognitive agent applying these principles to real-time decision making in real-world environments. The ideal candidate will demonstrate experience necessary to work closely with at least two of the participating laboratories at UCSD (Abarbanel, Cauwenberghs, Gentner, Lindenberg, Rabinovich, Sejnowski) and interact at all of the interfaces of the disciplines represented by the researchers in our groups. Candidates with demonstrated expertise in electrophysiology in awake behaving animals, computational and theoretical neuroscience, nonlinear dynamical systems, thermodynamics, fluctuations, and neuromorphic engineering and analog VLSI circuits and systems are strongly encouraged to apply. We will accept applications immediately and will begin making selections on May 1, 2013, until all positions are filled.
Appointments are for two years (in one-year increments) with the possibility of a third. Send your statement of qualifications and interest with curriculum vitae, your two most significant publications and three letters of reference to Henry Abarbanel, Gert Cauwenberghs, Tim Gentner, Katja Lindenberg, Mikhail Rabinovich, and Terrence Sejnowski via email to: <postdoc.muri at gmail.com<mailto:postdoc.muri at gmail.com>>. A Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree is required prior to the appointment. UCSD is an EO/AA employer.
